In just a few steps, you can quickly and easily upgrade your forms created before September 6 to the new v54.0 API. Find helpful instructions on how to upgrade your forms to v54.0 API  here. When upgrading, don’t forget to make a duplicate of your form first to avoid any disruptions to your live form. 

And remember, Salesforce retires certain objects within their release cycles, so upgrading the API version of your form could cause you to no longer have access to certain objects and fields. The objects retired in the release of API v54.0 can be found here.
